a video photoshop tutorial | before and after in CS6

by Lisa Harrison

So are you still undecided about making the jump to Adobe Photoshop CS6? Go for it!  You’ll love it! If you’re familiar with CS4 or CS5, you really won’t have much of a learning curve at all. The main thing that is different is how the adjustment panel works. You still have an adjustment panel but you now have a Properties Panel where you make changes to your chosen adjustment. You still choose your adjustments from the adjustment panel but once you’ve done so, you’re taken to a properties panel. It is here that you make your adjustments. And from here you can switch back and forth between your actual adjustment and your layer mask. No more mask panel. It’s different at first but it really makes things so much easier.  Would you like to see how I edit my photos and get a glimpse at CS6?  Click on the picture below to watch a video of me editing!

As CM’s Photoshop expert, it’s only fitting that Lisa is the instructor for the Lighting 101: Intro to Natural Light, Processing 101: Photoshop Fundamentals for Photographers, and Processing 201: Intermediate Photoshop for Photographers workshops.  Speaking of her photography journey, Lisa says, “when my son was born I became hooked on photography.  I wanted to capture everything I could.  When he napped, I read about photography and taught myself photoshop.  My husband bought me my first DSLR in 2004 and the rest is history.”  With her Canon 5d mark III and various lenses, mostly primes, she enjoys lifestyle photography with bright clean processing and natural skin tones but equally loves black and whites.  Living in Vermont with her husband and two children, Lisa loves skiing and boating.  Family, friends, Starbucks, Zumba, her camera and computer are among her list of must haves.

    Yes! I shared on Facebook and Twitter. I’ve tried 3 different ways to pin it on Pinterest but it’s not taking. Has this been an issue? Suggestions? I’d love to have this tutorial on my board.

    Hi! I am trying to view your editing photo, is it disabled? I’m very curious in seeing the steps you take to edit your photos!
